Introduction

Found these old notes in a folder and thought I should post them.

Flight 1 (17 notes)

White
1998 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Herrenweg de Turckheim France, Alsace
86 points
Medium gold. Candied pear, apricots, minerals and floral notes. Medium finish but a tad bit bitter for my tastes.
White
2000 Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch (Erben-Thanisch) Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer
86 points
Light gold in color. Floral, mineral and candied fruit. A bit too sweet and not balanced. Acidity was lacking. Shorter finish.
White
2001 Müller-Catoir Haardter Bürgergarten Riesling Kabinett halbtrocken Germany, Pfalz
88 points
Light gold. Minerals, apple, floral and tropical fruits. Short to medium finish and decant acid. Drink now.
White - Off-dry
2004 Weingut Spreitzer Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Spätlese 303 Germany, Rheingau
91 points
Best of the Rieslings by a land slide. Floral, mineral, dried apricots, golden apple and fresh cut peaches. This has a good structure and acidity is vibrant. Medium plus finish and just enjoyable to drink.
White
1995 Château Carbonnieux Blanc France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan
88 points
Slight peach aroma and a little mineral. Good acidity and clean finish.
Red
1994 Château Montrose France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe
90 points
Medium purple. Tobacco, oak, sour cherry and a bit on the rustic side. Good minerality on the finish. Drink now.
Red
2001 Château Lynch-Bages France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac
88 points
Minerals, forest floor, spices and subtle fruit. Very soft wine and not exactly an enticing vintage.
Red
1999 Château Cos d'Estournel France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe
90 points
Medium purple in color. Cherry, minerals and expressive flavors. Decant acidity and solid finish. Should improve with age.
Red
2000 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux
87 points
Simple wine with spices, raspberry and earth. Medium finish and lacks complexity. Weak for a 2000.
Red
2000 Château Léoville Poyferré France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Julien
94 points
Amazing effort. Minerals, cherry, raspberries, floral and cigar box. Medium to long finish and super complex wine. Wine of the night for sure!
Red
2000 Château Calon-Ségur France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe
92 points
Minerals, lighter red fruits, funk and coffee beans. Medium finish and good acidity. Hold. 92-94.
Red
2000 Château Giscours France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux
92 points
Coffee beans, spice box, truffles and intense fruits. Long finish and excellent wine. This will improve with age.
Red
2000 Château Rauzan-Ségla France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux
92 points
Nice wine in its infancy. Minerals, tobacco, cherry and dark fruits. Medium plus finish and solid wine.
Red
2000 Château Cos d'Estournel France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Estèphe
Green and seems off. No score given on this one.
White - Off-dry
1995 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer
93 points
Wonderful wine. Floral, slate, apricots and peach cobbler. Super finish and complex wine.
White - Sweet/Dessert
2005 Château Guiraud France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes
91 points
Golden apples, apricots and peaches. Concentrated and on the younger side. This should evolve over the years.
